A new model, the C900, part of the AKG Emotion Series of dynamic microphones, was shown during the recent AES show. According to AKG, the Emotion line is popular with musicians and voiceover artists.
The C900 is a high-quality condenser microphone with a 24-carat gold plated transducer case for protection against corrosion and humidity. The transducer element is shock-mounted in an elastic ring. In addition to the transducer case and the decorative gold ring, the XLR connector is 24-carat gold plated for an electrical contact.
The mic is insensitive to handling noise; a resonance weight tunes the transducer resonance frequency to a value where handling noise is nearly eliminated completely.
A supplied presence boost adapter can be installed to boost the 5 to 9 kHz range by 2 to 4 dB for better intelligibility.
The wire mesh grille on the C900 is spring steel to provide added protection from rough handling. Price: $250 list.
